Paul Scholes is one of the leading contenders for the Oldham job after reportedly being interviewed by the Sky Bet League One club.
The Manchester United legend was initially priced up as a 20/1 outsider in Sky Bet's 'next Oldham boss' betting following the departure of John Sheridan in the wake of a 5-1 hammering at Rotherham towards the end of September.
He then drifted out to 25/1 as other contenders such as Nancy manager Pablo Correa and Latics caretaker boss Richie Wellens headed the market while Dutch great Clarence Seedorf even became front-runner at 2/5 after meeting with the club, although he's since drifted in the betting to 16/1.
Two years ago he turned down the chance to take charge at Boundary Park and told The Independent back then: "One day I believe I'll manage Oldham, who are very close to my heart. This was the right job at the wrong time.
"They are a really good family club who mean a great deal to a lot of people - myself included. I just did not feel this was the right time. When I go into management, I want to do so with 100% commitment. At the moment I have a lot of responsibilities and things going on in my life that I cannot simply drop immediately."
He is not short of responsibilities at the moment, being a co-owner of Salford City alongside former United legends Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville, Gary Neville and Nicky Butt, while he also works as a pundit for BT Sport.
